FOOL'S PARADISE - Demo Released

All men must decide whether to carry or cage their own shadow - fools who venture to do both are bound to go mad

About the Game

Fool’s Paradise is a satirical horror visual novel with romantic elements established by the diverse and dedicated ant colony of DEADline Studios.


Invited by a stranger to join Fool’s Paradise, a so-called “safe haven of acceptance”, you find yourself living among an eccentric cast of characters. You figure that like you, they were also lured in by the promise to live unapologetically as themselves. Seeking a sense of community without conformity, you do your best to contribute to the commune.

But even in paradise, it seems, competition and contempt lurk about.


Life is made up of difficult choices. No matter where you go, that truth remains the same. So, when confronted by division and derision, will you change the status quo or are you content to let it crumble?
